If your doctor decides you need regular medication, keep the right hand side of your prescription list with all the items on it. When you need more medication you should tick the items you want and hand the list in to reception or order it online.
From Monday 4th December 2017 we will no longer accept requests for prescriptions by telephone.
The practice will send your prescription electronically to your preferred pharmacy where possible. We still require 3 working days to complete your request.
You can order your repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration; please contact the surgery for information.
Patients on repeat medication will, from time to time,l be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse to review these regular medications
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. If you are collecting it from a pharmacy of your choice please allow three full working days.

PLEASE ASK AT THE RECEPTION DESK FOR AN EXEMPTION FORM AND THIS WILL BE GIVEN TO YOUR GP FOR SIGNING. YOU DO NOT NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE THE GP.The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 3 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Please note that from October 2nd 2017 we will no longer accept requests for a prescription by telephone.
